Get to grips with one of the world’s most luxurious powerboats with this exhilarating Sunseeker experience. These spectacular vessels are capable of truly incredible speeds, and your heart will race as you tear across the waves of the Solent. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to take the helm at both fast and slow speeds, and your expert skipper will give you all the guidance you need to ensure you feel completely in control - and there will be lots of photo opportunities!
Upon arrival you’ll meet the Skipper and Crew. You will then make your way to the Sunseeker. Once settled onboard and after the safety briefing, the Skipper will take you through the marina where you will see other ‘millionaire lifestyle’ powerboats and yachts on their moorings.
You’ll continue with a cruise down the River Itchen to Southampton Water for the opportunity to see the magnificent cruise ships on their docks. At this stage, the Skipper will explain navigation and basic plotting techniques and answer any questions. All participants will get the option to have a drive at slow speed to get the feel of this luxury powerboat.
On reaching the open waters of The Solent where the speed restriction ends, the Skipper will open up the throttles for a “full-on” blast with speeds of up to 39 knots, using the supercharged and turbocharged twin engines at 460HP to display the capabilities of this superb 40’ Sunseeker performance powerboat. Then once again it's 'OVER TO YOU' to take a turn at the helm to drive and feel the superb handling characteristics of this sleek powerboat at high speed. You’ll head over to the Isle of Wight and around the famous Bramble Bank. On reaching the Isle of Wight, the Skipper will cruise past the mouth of the River Medina (east and west Cowes), allowing time to take in the views and for each participant to have their photographs taken at the helm.
The fun continues, with more “full-on” thrills and a high speed blast back to the Marina as you once again travel across the Solent and the mouth of the famous River Hamble. Photographs and HD film clips will be taken on the experience and emailed as a memento of this unforgettable experience.
